Literacy Initiative Service Opportunity: My name is Agha Haider. I am a freshman at Whitfield School. I am working to start a committee that will help plan fundraising events and help overall with the initiative. I'm looking for students in grade 9-12 that would be interested in participating in the committee. The committee meetings will most likely be once per month. The Literacy Initiative is an organization that I started back in January. Our end goal is to make sure every child has a book to read. We provide book to students in schools throughout the North County area. We also have formed a literary club in Lee-Hamilton Elementary School where students break up into small groups and pick a book to read and discuss. We then provide the books to each child free of charge. If interested, please contact me at: email@example.com
